We’ve been conditioned, from an early age, to believe that one day we’ll reach a moment of “arrival.” But no matter how much we achieve or acquire we still don’t feel as satisfied or as fulfilled as we thought we would be. Exhausted, we become burned out and cynical, questioning the purpose of it all.
An expert on happiness and work, Suneel Gupta argues that for too long society has been fixated on the Future of Work and ignored the Future of Worth. We’ve compartmentalized work and well-being and ignored the fact that both are essential for sustained success. We’ve assumed that outer success leads to inner well-being–despite history showing us that this has never been the case. In his new book Everyday Dharma: 8 Essential Practices for Finding Success and Joy in Everything You Do, Gupta helps us break this negative cycle. A captivating storyteller, he weaves personal stories, history, science, Eastern philosophy, and Western modalities in this engaging, enlightening, and prescriptive book.
As the founding CEO of RISE and a visiting scholar at Harvard Medical School, Gupta travels the world, deconstructing how extraordinary performers overcome their most difficult moments. His work has been featured by outlets including Vanity Fair, Fast Company, and the New York Times. He will be in conversation with Debbie Millman, host of the Webby Award-winning podcast Design Matters, one of the first and longest running podcasts in the world; chair of the first-ever Masters in Branding Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City; co-owner and editorial director of PrintMag.com; and the author of seven books on design and branding.
This event suitable for youth 12+. It will be recorded and available on FAN’s website and YouTube channel.
BONUS AFTER-HOURS EVENT: Attendees who purchase a copy of Everyday Dharma from FAN’s partner bookseller The Book Stall are invited to attend an AFTER-HOURS event hosted by Gupta and Millman that will start immediately after the webinar. Details on the webinar registration page.
